Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg and more than 700 of his employees walked in San Francisco's gay pride parade Sunday.
Zuckerberg's participation in the parade came after he posted a Facebook status last week lauding the U.S. Supreme Court ruling that a key section of the Defense of Marriage Act, which allowed states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriages, was unconstitutional.
"I'm proud that our country is moving in the right direction, and I'm happy for so many of my friends and their families. #PrideConnectsUs," Zuckerberg said online.
Facebook said employees wore shirts of all colors to represent the symbol of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. They were also joined by same-sex marriage advocate Brendon Ayanbadejo, a former linebacker with the Baltimore Ravens.
